I repaired the exhaust and rode it around the neighborhood for a whole whopping 0.7 miles.
According to the cheap Schwinn speedo I hit 31mph, was not trying to go that fast either.
It sounds good and has a little bit more hill climbing ability now.

I pulled my daughter in her kid trailer, to the neighborhood playground. My wife got off work early, so she carried her home after we ate, and I put the trailer in the car. I raced my wife back home the 5 miles from the park. My wife beat by less than 5 minutes. ;-)

Well, I finished brazing my aluminum tank. Now I have to wait for my sealant to come in. Then comes surface finishing and priming. Then painting. At least the hard part is over. I may take a final picture of the finished product.

Today I soldered and redrilled my NT jet smaller, and I'm liking it. Before my bike would bog down at high rpm, and now it just flows up the rpm until it tops out. I need to change the idle a little bit because it sounded like it was idling a little high. And I'll do a plug chop. I also purchased a rustoleum color changing paint to paint the gas tank and handle bars to compliment the color of the frame. I know I'm still new to this but I really like it!

I rode to Lacey, from Yelm, and broke down. The woodruf key came out,my fault, it broke one other time and I had to put a gear and the key, when I put the first one in,I didn't get it right. that is all, I had to pedal about 3mils,I was hating life. I cauught the bus most of the way, I had to lift it up and down 4 times and I had stuff in the saddel carrier in the rear.Got home and fixed again,this time I was real carfel abou it this time. Then I worked on the new boat garage. Well tomarrow is another day and if it goes well I'll get the lawn mowed. Thanks all.
